I want to lose weight, I want to get more fit, I want to be stronger etc. If you want it, you have to work for it. It is not going to happen any other way, not permanently anyway. If you really want to lose weight in a healthy way, you will cut back on processed foods & eat more whole foods. If you really want to get more fit, you will move more, regularly throughout the day. If you exercise every day even for an hour, but you spend the rest of the day sitting, you must get up & move more. If you want to get stronger, you need to build muscle. It really doesn’t take much. A little bit goes a long way.
What about the other way around? Can one do too much? Yes one can. It is easier to over do it especially if one has a chronic health condition. One may be so determined to make improvements that he/she works so hard that it causes more stress & harm by working to complete fatigue when they were already fatigued to begin with. One should work towards improving of course, but after a session you should feel good, you should feel refreshed & you should feel better when you are done, even though you also feel as though you worked hard & you may be tired, but not fatigued to the point of not being able to carry on with your day at least as you normally would have otherwise. With regular exercise, you should notice an increase in your energy, not a decline. Daily tasks should feel easier, not more of a burden.
Don’t just sit & wish. Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. With time, you will get leaner, stronger& more fit. Practice makes Permanent :)
Disclaimer: It is my pleasure to answer your questions regarding exercises. I am not however able to help you if you’ve recently had an injury or surgery & have not yet received your doctors approval to exercise. You must have the green light to start an exercise program before I can recommend appropriate exercises for you. I am all about safety first!
Move more to feel better.
